Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime—about 9 out of 10 women, in fact.
Unfortunately, no matter how much you work out, eat healthy, or wish it away—cellulite won’t
budge unless you get to the source. That’s where QWO® comes in.
Am I a good candidate for QWO?
- Patients who are at or near ideal body weight
- Have moderate to severe cellulite of the buttocks
- Have minimal skin laxity or looseness of the skin of that area
(typically looseness of the skin increases with patient age)
QWO® is only indicated to treat cellulite, not skin laxity.
How can you tell the difference?
Before making your consultation appointment, you can do a quick self check to see if the dimple-looking areas on your buttocks are cellulite:
- Stand in front of a mirror
- Lift the dimple upward, if the dimple goes away, it’s probably due to laxity, if not you may be an ideal candidate for QWO®.
It can be hard to talk about something as personal as your cellulite. You can take comfort in knowing that you’re not alone in your struggles with cellulite.
What is celluite?
Cellulite is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all races and ethnicities.
Together, there are three things that cause cellulite’s signature dimples: over time, skin thins, fat cells enlarge and push against the skin, and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface thicken and cause tension.
How does QWO work?
It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways:
Releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients experience Injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area. In clinical studies, side effects generally lasted less than three weeks.
How many sessions will I need?
Your provider will determine the best treatment plan specific to your needs. Most patients require an average of three QWO treatments, one every three weeks.
How long do injections take?
Injections usually take 15 minutes or less.
